Florida Cop Fired After Posts Backing Capitol Rioters

NBC News reports:

A Florida police officer was fired earlier this month after a citizen reported him for posting politically charged and racist memes and musings on social media.

The Kissimmee Police Department verified 30 screenshots of Facebook posts made by Officer Andrew Johnson in support of Capitol riots and Trump and disparaging the Black Lives Matter movement. He also shared his views on abortion, gun rights and athletes kneeling during the National Anthem.

In apparent response to the riots at the U.S. Capitol earlier this month, Johnson wrote: “The silent majority will rise!! Day one of the Revolutionary War!! Hang on, it’s only just begun.”
